What to wear for your session...
In general, wear something you feel confident, comfortable, and attractive in. That positive energy will show in your photos. The following recommendations are a starting point for those who are uncertain about what to wear for a photo shoot. Individual expression in clothing and styling is encouraged and may not follow every or any of the recommendations mentioned below.
Stick to solid colors. Avoid anything too detailed in pattern or anything with stripes, they tend to distract from the face and can even fight the camera creating a moiré effect, where the image results in a wavy color pattern not represented in that actual fabric. Hounds tooth or tight pin stripes may also have this effect.
Wear colors that compliment skin tones. Jewel tones tend to look good on most everyone and can help make the photos pop. Avoid colors that are too similar to skin tone, to prevent blending in or washing out the face.
Avoid overpowering colors, such as hot pinks or neon yellows, which may fight the camera resulting in a loss of detail in the image.
Use texture. Texture in an outfit can add interest to a portrait or headshot.
Use Layers. Layers, such as a light jacket (casual or professional, depending on the session type) interest..
Avoid ill fitted clothing. Anything too tight or too baggy will show and may even seem exaggerated in photos.
For acting headshots, wearing a shirt with a more open neckline such as a simple v-neck, will draw the viewer's eye to the face.
Avoid any words or logos in clothing choices unless the purpose of the photo session is to represent/promote a company's specific brand.
